Miniature Moss Gardens: Create Your Own Japanese Container Gardens

We rated this book:


If you need more calm, green, space in your home, then you should take a look at Miniature Moss Gardens: Create Your Own Japanese Container Gardens. This beautifully illustrated book contains tons of photographs and illustrations to help you learn all about different kinds of moss and the small container gardens they can be used in.

The book begins with a “pop quiz” about moss. It also introduces readers to an illustrated moss ball character, Kokedama, who gives somewhat snarky but helpful commentary throughout the book. It’s a whimsical approach, but it makes the book accessible and fun for all readers.

All the information you could want about moss is included in this book: parts of moss, types of moss, when to gather moss, and tools for collecting moss and for creating your own miniature moss garden.

It displays many different options for moss gardens, so there is truly something for everyone here. The information is clear, well illustrated, and gives plenty of instruction on how to do it yourself.

Even if you’ve never considered starting a moss garden, this book will make you into a moss fan. This beautiful, informative, and fun book is well worth reading.
